Sooke vacation rentals

Sooke invites you to enjoy a vacation at your own pace

A picturesque, harbor-side town on British Columbia’s dramatic Pacific Ocean coastline, Sooke enthralls visitors with its natural beauty and artisan flair. Explore ancient coastal rainforests, spend the day on sweeping white-sand beaches, or head out to the waters around Southern Vancouver Island to get up close and personal with one of three resident orca pods. Sooke vacation rentals are as varied as the activities on offer but whether you choose a smart townhouse with mesmerizing views of the Olympic Peninsula or opt instead for a secluded hideaway perched atop a cliff, you can’t help but feel right at home.

Get to know the great outdoors in Sooke

Activities in Sooke often have an outdoor flavor. From thrilling off-road adventures in the backcountry destination of Bear Creek to mountain biking at Broom Hill and Mount Manuel Quimper, there are many wonderful ways to enjoy the great outdoors. If you hoped to take things at a slower pace, there are still plenty of activities to make your stay memorable. You might like to while away a few hours cycling or walking along the scenic Galloping Goose Regional Trail, head to Whiffen Spit for birdwatching, or perhaps stroll through a local marina where fish-cleaning stations are a magnet for hungry harbor seals.

Discover Sooke’s artistic and cultural flair

Outdoor adventure certainly plays a part in Sooke’s appeal but don’t miss the opportunity to experience the town’s arts and cultural scene. The Sooke Regional Museum, where family-friendly exhibits highlight the cultures of the T’Sou-ke First Nations People, 18th century Spanish explorers, and 19th century pioneers, is an excellent place to start. From there, a trip to Leechtown, a ghost town located 12 miles north of Sooke, is the perfect way to round off a fascinating day. During the summer, the 11-day Sooke Fine Arts Festival provides a chance to view the wealth of work produced by local and regional artists.

Enjoy a year-round love affair with Sooke

A blooming landscape, seemingly endless festivals, and sunny days in July and August, when temperatures can reach the high 80s, make Sooke a popular summer getaway. Don’t write off the rest of the year, though. Rain is indeed more likely over the winter months but snowfall is an uncommon event and temperatures very rarely fall below zero thanks to the protection of the surrounding mountains. The moderate climate, combined with easy access to the town from Victoria and a fairly lengthy whale-watching season, means that a stay in a Sooke vacation rental is always on the cards.

Sooke has been blessed by Mother Nature

A stay in a Sooke vacation rental places everything from sweeping beaches and lush rainforest to rugged backcountry terrain and towering mountainsides on your doorstep. Parks also have a starring role in Mother Nature’s design here, not least at East Sooke Regional Park in late September when the west coast wilderness provides an ideal staging ground for southbound wildlife such as northern harrier osprey and red-tailed hawks. In the summer months, the chance to swim in the aqua-green water of naturally formed pools makes a trip to Sooke Potholes Provincial Park a must-do during your trip.
